Luxury holidays: Borneo offers a glimpse of the wild
For people travelling on luxury holidays to South East Asia, the tropical rainforests of Borneo offer a close-up look at some of the world's most endangered species.
That is according to traveller Jane Slade, who wrote for Trip Ideas that proboscis monkeys are among the many creatures that travellers will quickly discover when heading into Borneo's luscious jungle.
"There is nothing like seeing a creature in the wild but to spot an endangered one like this was excitement beyond belief," she wrote.
"He was a large chap with, yes, a very big nose. Fortunately, the females of the species rather like partners to have big noses."
She also explained how Borneo has become much more tourist-friendly in recent years, adding that just ten years ago, only "ardent conservationists or a member of David Attenborough's camera crew" would be able to gain access to its hidden wilderness.
The third largest island in the world, Borneo is located in the Pacific ocean and is shared between Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia.
Its highest point is Mount Kinabula in Sabah, Malaysia, with an elevation of 4,095 metres.
